Corrie van Binsbergen (1957) is a guitarist, composer, bandleader and the artistic and commercial director of Stichting Brokken, a foundation through which she initiates cross-border projects. Van Binsbergen became well known with her band Corrie en de Grote Brokken, a joint collaboration involving leading Dutch pop and jazz artists, and through the series Schrijvers In Concert, a combination of music and literature. Apart from composing many pieces for her own projects she also accepts commissions to write compositions for others. Moreover, she composes soundtracks for radio plays and films and in 1999 she won the prestigious Boy Edgar Prize. Her latest project is VanBinsbergen Playstation: an octet made up of leading Dutch musicians that first came together for a one-off performance at the BrokkenBal in March 2014. Afterwards, they decided to continue working as a band and in May 2015 they performed for the first time under that name at the Jazz in Duketown festival. Just as before, there are no boundaries and no stylistic restrictions just pure energy, raw and playful. The band’s CD Live was widely acclaimed.
